Lin is a Scientist-turned-artist, with her fascination in BioArt having stemmed from a Life Sciences degree from the National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan and a Masters at the Royal College of Art in London. She’s also participated in residencies at CERN (Switzerland) and the LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial (Spain), and even acted as an advisor to the London iGEM team (‘Auxin‘).
In the name of Nanoscience, Lin explored the concept of Nanofoods and the Modern attitude to eating habits in Minimal Nano Diet (2013). Lin’s view is that the future of Nutrition could lead to the breakdown of eating rituals and excess, instead relying on logistically accurate meals of amino acids, cellulose and fats to fulfil our needs.
Her interests reach the microscopic organism level too,
